Phoenix Bat Removal

My name is Joseph, and I specialize in the safe, humane, and effective removal of bats from buildings. I live in Phoenix, and operate throughout metropolitan area, and I have performed bat removal projects throughout the state of Arizona. Bat removal is specialty work, and experience matters. Not every company is the same. Some will do a terrible job, some will kill bats, some will leave bats to enter the living space of your home. Through my many years of experience, I have learned how to successfully remove 100% of the bats, without killing any, with a 100% success rate, and guarantee against re-entry. Give me a phone call any time, and we will discuss your bat problem in Phoenix. I can usually come to the property within a day to do a full inspection and give you a written price quote to permanently solve the bat problem.

We operate 24/7. We are fully licensed and insured. We offer a full written guarantee on our work, and provide a full range of services for all of your bat control needs, including full home repairs and bat prevention, and attic cleanup of bat guano. We are very familiar with and compliant with the state laws regarding bat removal in Arizona.

Superior Bat Exclusion: Not every company is the same. In fact, if you hire a regular pest control company here in Phoenix, one that deals with poisoning insects, they often cause disastrous results when attempting bat removal work - they often try to poison the bats like bugs! Bats don't work that way. They must be excluded. Bats leave their roost (your home or building) every night to feed on insects. At that time, if you've properly sealed all secondary exit points and properly installed one-way exclusion devices over the primary bat exit points, you can remove the entire colony. It's not quite as simple as that, but that the gist of it. Within 3 days, the entire colony will be completely gone, and none of the bats killed or even injured.

Residential Homes: The majority of the cases of Phoenix bat removal involve the removal of small-medium colonies inside residential homes in the Phoenix area. The most common bat here is the Mexican Feetail Bat, which can form huge maternity colonies. Sometimes people don't notice the bats in the home when the colony is small, like 30 bats or less. At that size, they are fairly quiet, and the droppings haven't accumulated to a noticeable size to cause odor problems. However, bats live a long time, and each of the members in your attic (colonies are entirely female) will give birth to one young per year, so the size of the colony roughly doubles every year. And no, bats don't just go somewhere else. Once a colony is established, it will stay in that house year after year. Some do in fact migrate, depending on factors such as temperature and food sources, but even if they migrate out at a certain time of year, they will definitely return to your house again. We service all Phoenix homes, both big and small, and any type of roof, from shingle to tile.

Commercial Properties: Some bat removal jobs are large and challenging. We can remove bats from any possible structure. We have worked on all kinds of commercial properties - from large apartment and condominium complexes, to shopping malls, hotels, parking garages, etc. Bats will live in very tall buildings, over 100 feet tall, in which case special equipment is necessary. We take great care in ensuring that the bats are removed discreetly and safely, with top concern for your clients in mind. The liability risks of having a colony of bats living in a building, particularly health risks such as rabies or histoplasmosis, are too high. We not only remove all of the bats from the building, but we fully clean and decontaminate the mess the bats have left behind.

We carry the proper state licensing and liability insurance, and can provide references from other commercial bat control projects on request. Call me any time to schedule a building inspection and receive a complete proposal for the removal of bats from your building(s).

Attic Decontamination: Bats leave behind a lot of feces (guano) when they inhabit a building. In fact, I have been to some houses that have had several hundred pounds of bat feces. At this level, there is structural damage (the ceilings started to collapse). But that's an extreme case. In most cases, there'll be mounds of bat droppings below popular roosting areas, and bat pellets scattered throughout the attic, and down the walls. The problem with the bat droppings is that they can grow mold which can cause lung diseases in humans. This is a biohazard risk, and so a building should be properly cleaned and decontaminated after all the bats have been removed. The droppings can also cause odor problems, so our cleaning technique not only kills all the mold spores and bacteria, but also eliminates the odor. We remove bulk bat guano and contaminated insulation, and light contamination by filter vacuum. We are able to remove the droppings from attics, walls, and anywhere it has accumulated. We use a special enzyme-based cleaner to fog the attic and wall voids, to kill all mold and pathogens, and kill the odor as well. Not only does the bat feces need to be addressed, but the urine that has soaked into wood, insulation, and other parts of the structure as well.

We service the greater Phoenix area, and even the entire state of Arizona for larger bat exclusion projects. Some of the areas we commonly service include Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, Tempe, Glendale, Mesa, Gilbert, Chandler, Avondale, Sun City, Peoria, Surprise, Fountain Hills, and Sun Lakes.
